The Rangers have agreed to terms with undrafted free agent forward Michael Kantor.
The 6' 1" Kantor, 21, registered 20 goals and 13 assists for 33 points, along with 93 penalty minutes in 56 games with the Sudbury Wolves of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) this season. He established career-highs in goals and points. Kantor ranked fourth on the team in goals, eighth in points, and third in penalty minutes. He also tied for third on Sudbury with six power play goals, and was one of four Wolves’ players to record a shorthanded goal.
Apparently, from the videos on YouTube, Kantor likes to do this...
...with fighting virtually extinct from the Rangers game plan this season, I welcome this kid into the organization with open arms.
Is it me or has the team just not been the same without Sean Avery? Even though he was supposedly bad for the team?
How can the difference possibly be the coaching?? It's been a constant between last season and this one.
@TheNYRBlog clowe trade was huge. Love having a guy that gets full shifts and goes with top guys.
Brian Boyle out indefinitely.... so get used to Kreider, hopefully he throws the body around like he had been the second time he came up (or was it the third? who can keep track anymore).
@TheNYRBlog virtually extinct ? Totally extinct. A bunch of large vaginas on the ice most of the time. Sorry for the imagery. Not so sorry.
@TheNYRBlog hell. yeah.
We need a good heavy weight guy...last heavy weight we had was coloton orr. Went all down hill after we lost the bogyman
@TheNYRBlog the Rangers went from the team that led the league in fighting majors to essentially a rough touch flag football team
What the hell happened to Clowe? One of my favorite players, and now he's fucking invisible. This has to have something to do with the coaching, any player that comes here with energy loses it a few games in and becomes invisible. I just don't understand.
@dook83 My guess is that Torts doesn't want anyone injured or any penalties. Also, if the coaching was so constant, why isn't there any fighting or big hitting anymore?
@Josh6 Kreider's done that alot when he was here, clearing the crease, hitting, and getting chances. No wonder Torts hates him.
@PenaltySh0t Torts and Sullivan happened. The don't take penalties mentality cuts back on the Rangers aggressiveness b/c they're afraid of getting benched or berated by Torts for taking what Torts would refer to as a stupid penalty.
@PenaltySh0t could be the locker room too.... doesnt seem like Callahan is having any impact on these guys. Also, in that Flyers game it looked like Cally was worn out, first time I didnt see him hit everything that moved
@TruBluEsp you know that's what I was thinking, when the PK was bad to start the season, that was exactly what I thought.
@Josh6 Callahan is having an awful season. Plain and simple.
@Josh6 I really think we should hire Guy Boucher. Sully is a defensive asst. coach, we need a guy with fresh offensive ideas, cause their ideas are laughable. And I will DIE if I see more dump and chase on the PP....
@PenaltySh0t Shortened season? Bad coach? Bad assistant coach? or Brad Richards?..... My guess would be 2 or 4
@Josh6 I really just want to know what is it? Why is everyone so awful this season, except Stepan? What happened?!
@PenaltySh0t As is everyone, except Stepan and Hank, Staal was there too until his injury... Even Nash. I expected more from him, this year I get the feeling that he is very inconsistent, but the whole Rangers team has been
